“The City and the River”- The Rescues Transcribed by Robin Young Note: The way that the chords are played varies a lot. There are different inversions in the verses (C-/G, Eb/Bb, Eb/G) as well as chords being played without thirds (C-5, Ab5, Eb5). It wouldn’t be possible to articulate all of these differences from line to line, but it’s a cool sound to vary it up sometimes.
